Things have moved on, but it wasn’t too long ago that we’d have been impressed with the capability of the current Ford Ranger from full-size pickup trucks of the time. Of course, the Ford Ranger is a midsize and not a full-size pickup truck, but one that looks good and drives great both on and off-road wherever you are in Martinsville, Danville, Rocky Mount, or Greensboro. The Ford Ranger still fits the conventional view of a pickup truck outline, but it also manages to wear softer sculpting and rounded corners for a sportier aesthetic. Especially when coupled with the available Splash Package with orange and black accents, black wheels, and orange interior stitching that set it well apart from the usual black, sport, and chrome appearance packages.
The Ford Ranger is available in Xl, XLT, and Lariat trim levels that all get a 2.3-liter turbo-four engine with 270 horsepower, 310 lb.-ft. of torque, and a ten-speed automatic transmission as part of their standard equipment. Rear-drive is also standard, but a part-time four-wheel-drive system is available for all three trims. A properly configured Ford Ranger can now tow up to 7,500 pounds, and the maximum payload is an equally impressive 1,860 pounds. Rediscover the Ford Ranger with a test drive from Nelson Ford at 201 East Commonwealth Blvd, Martinsville, VA, or call us at 276-638-2331 to book an appointment at a time suitable for you.
